madmat said:I can understand swapping out the fan for the Intel (since it's 4 pin rather than 3) but I don't see why they couldn't do a 4 pin LED fan so the Intel boys could have some bling like everyone else.
If you're talking about the plastic one, then yeah. I was thinking the metal piece surrounding the cpu. Sorry.Rob Williams said:Err.. yes it is.

Rob Williams said:Looking for the ultimate air cooling solution for your Intel 775? The Zalman 9500AT may be up your alley, but may prove a little pricey for your liking. Installation proved a little problematic, but the cooling ability is evident.
After reading my review here, feel free to discuss it here!
Unregistered said:You installed the bracket wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's why you can't remove the CPU without removing the bracket. Rotate the bracket 180 degrees and you will have it in the right spot. The corner with the circular cut-out should be where the clip hinges on the motherboard. Go to www.zalmanusa.com and you can see a movie on 775 installation warning you where to put the cut-out corner.
I notice now that this is an old review...it was just referenced at a different forum where I am a member. It appears that not only did you manage to get the bracket rotated, but the cooler itself is installed backwards if I am not mistaken. The fan should be in the innermost region of the case, blowing the exhaust towards the back panel and the exhaust fan, not into the main cavity of the case, and definitely not directly onto your RAM.
